Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Ep. 16: He’s an Uchi!

Ep. 16: He’s an Uchi!

HNY! Kate and Yoko discuss their resolutions for the New Year, the (shitty) inauguration, and a slew of movies and TV (Kate’s crushes are Uchi from Terrace House and Diego Luna in all movies; Yoko recently watched Mulan for the first time ever). Disclaimer: this episode was recorded a little while ago. Thanks for having us back!

Show Notes

 
 

Yoko’s model minority is R. O. Kwon, who wrote a Vice article about the Asian-American literature that got her through the craptastic year of 2016. Yoko made it a new year’s resolution to read them all—so far, she’s finished Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Sympathizer and is in the middle of The Wangs vs. the World by Jade Chang!

On a related note, you should totally read Michiko Kakutani’s interview with Barack Obama in which he shares that reading books got him through his glorious presidency.

Kate’s model minority is Yukimi Nagano, the frontwoman of Swedish band Little Dragon. How can we not root for an Asian lady leading a band of European dudes?

 
 The still-sad thing is, I couldn’t find an image where the POC weren’t so tiny in comparison to Felicity Jones, but at least she’s a lady!

We were both stoked that Rogue One had a ton of people of color in actual speaking roles! But then we were also super bummed that (spoiler alert) everyone dies. On the plus side, representation matters, y’all:
